The Maiden and Death - an extraordinary musical-dramatic journey

A meeting between Schubert's immortal work and Dorfman's poignant play dealing with a woman's confrontation with the past in which she suffered severe torture to a totalitarian extent. Words and music intertwine and reinforce each other as Schubert's quartet leads the dramatic development of the play.
